“I’m delighted at the broad range of experience and expertise brought to the board by its members and I look forward to working with all of them for the benefit of rural Cheshire,” said Rural Regeneration Board chair Professor Chris Proudman.
“As the keepers of the Rural Regeneration and Rural Housing strategies, we are here to champion Rural West Cheshire and ensure it is a thriving and vibrant place to live and work.”
Cllr Herbert Manley, executive member for prosperity, said: “The Rural Regeneration Board has a key role to play in influencing the way Cheshire West and Chester Council invest, work with businesses to grow and respond to key government legislation.”
